Warning residents, he said all illegal structures standing in the way of any project would be demolished at the owner’s loss.

He said, “In Karon-Majigi we removed all illegal structures over 100 of them that are obstructing the road project to Kukwaba train station. We have to clear the houses wrongly built on these road corridors.

“This is against the warnings that we have always given via the media that you cannot buy land from the local Chiefs and build without approval.
